A Little About Fairview Lake YMCA Camps
Fairview Lake YMCA Camps was established way back in 1915, providing premier sleepaway camps for children and adolescents. Since then, our 660-acre summer camp has offered summer camps for children in grades 2 through 11, as well as family programs and weekend retreats. We're a 501(c)3 non-profit social services organization dedicated to youth development in our community. We emphasize healthy living, social responsibility, and building crucial skill sets. Many children who attend our summer camps leave with a heightened sense of confidence and a sense of belonging. We have something for everyone, from archery and climbing walls to numerous athletic fields.
Recognizing the Importance of Summer Camps
Why should you send your child to a summer camp? While there are numerous ways for your child to build confidence and explore their interests outside of camp, summer camps provide a unique experience, unlike those they'll find at home or school. Attending a summer camp gives children a sense of independence and allows them the freedom to explore their interests away from home. Children tend to gain lots of self-confidence, new skills, and better communication. Conflict resolution, social skills, and increased athleticism are only a few of the benefits your child might receive from their time at Fairview Lake YMCA Camps. What's more, these opportunities for self-discovery and exploration are always supervised and completely safe.
